4-H NYSD 2016 drone discovery design challenge

4-H National Youth Science Day

We are thrilled to announce the 2016 4-H National Youth Science Day (4-H NYSD) challenge: Drone Discovery.

Developed by Cornell University Cooperative Extension, this exciting and hands-on engineering design challenge explores the science behind drones and how they are being used to solve real world problems. Youth will learn everything from flight dynamics and aircraft types, to safety and regulations, to remote sensing and flight control.

The 9th annual 4-H NYSD Challenge will be held on Wednesday, October 5, 2016 and will bring together youth from across the nation to complete this single, innovative activity.

Challenge kits, which include everything you need to complete Drone Discovery, are available for pre-sale now at the 4-H Mall. Pre-order your kit today for only $21.95 and save, through July 21 only
